Abstract

Manipulation of the input pulse chirp during supercontinuum generation in tapered fibers provides precise control of the soliton fission process taking place in the taper waist. Simulations and experiments demonstrate that controlling this pre-chirp by a pulse shaper can be applied to compensate for deleterious effects due to untapered fiber pigtails. Temporal and cross-correlation frequency resolved measurements are utilized to show, that the control of the soliton fission dynamics can be obtained by manipulating the input pulse chirp through the imposition of a quadratic spectral phase.
